First, trained researchers and student assistants selected those pictures that had an acceptable photographic quality. Similarity effects in face recognition. Psychophysiology, 44, 3, We administered a 1 -back task with one practice block and four experimental blocks of trials. In this task, we required participants to determine the mixture ratios of two prototypical expressions of emotions. Kinesthetic awareness is important to successfully navigate the environment. Thirty years of investigating the own-race bias in memory for faces:
FEFA - a computer based program for the training and testing of facial affect recognition
In each trial we used three different identities of the same sex. As required for speed tasks, accuracy rates were at ceiling. Every single task was introduced by proctors and additional instructions were provide on screen. However, the other conditions did not show a significant difference in emotional intensity between them. Learning and recognition of emotion expressions of different intensity.
Test battery for measuring the perception and recognition of facial expressions of emotion
With respect to results concerning the covariance structure it might be argued that some of the emotion-specific results are not promising enough because some of the psychometric results are still in the lower range of desirable magnitudes. Additionally, expressions of anger were significantly better retrieved than surprise, fear, or disgust expressions. Unidimensional ability or a set of modality- and emotion-specific skills? This method was originally used to investigate the neural correlates of non-emotional memories 3 , and more recently we and others also applied it successfully to studies of emotional memory reviewed in 4, Speed tasks of perceiving and identifying facial emotion expressions We also developed speed indicators of emotion perception and emotion recognition ability following the same rationale as described by Herzmann et al.
Evolution and Human Behavior, 38, In a four-alternative forced-choice-decision paradigm, stimuli depicting static eye regions are used that are assumed to represent 36 complex mental states e. All tasks are available for non-commercial research purposes upon request from the corresponding author. The scoring of these tasks focuses on either the speed or accuracy of performance.
